I'm just wondering what you guys think of McLain Ward and Sapphire being DQ'd from the FEI World Cup? I personally can't form an opinion - it seems like there must be so much more to the story.
On one hand I say yeah, sure, make him sit it out - after the plastic pins issue and the insurance scandal. What do you guys think?
This is the FEI story:

This is the plastic pins issue:
EQUESTRIANISM; Ward leaves in disgrace
And finally the insurance scandal:
HORSE SHOW;Equestrians Facing Competition and Lingering Scandal
The insurance scandal was more of a Barney Ward affair, however I do remember reading years ago that McLain was aware and involved. Of course, he would have only been a teenager at the time, but as a teenager I didn't kill horses..
What do you guys think? Send him home or let him ride?
